    About me

    Many years experience in theatre, working in musicals dance and drama. I have design and technician experience working on large scale musicals, new writing, abstract and absurdist theatrical works, touring amongst others.

    I have a very positive and hands on approach to lighting, and am a perfectionist when it comes to design. I love working in new venues and with new people, and enjoy collaborating, as well as the exploration of new work.
